Upcoming workshops

Boost business through Facebook advertising

Find out how to use Facebook posts to inform, intrigue, and offer incentives to followers – and then take that engagement beyond page posts by advertising.

Facebook advertising can take your business to the next level, although it is crucial that you understand the foundations to avoid wasting time and money.

This workshop is for small business owners who want to make the most of Facebook’s advertising capabilities and increase traffic, leads and sales by setting up their own targeted Facebook ads.

Some of the topics to be covered include:

  • how Facebook advertising works
  • setting up an effective Facebook ad
  • tracking your ad’s success
  • the do’s and don’ts of Facebook advertising

When: Wednesday 24 July 2019, 9.30am to 12.30pm
Where: BizHub at Realm, Ringwood Town Square, 179 Maroondah Highway, Ringwood.
